function get_linkobjectsbyname($cat_name = "noname" , $orderby = 'name', $limit = -1) {}

Gets an array of link objects associated with category $cat_name.


  • string $cat_name: The category name to use. If no match is found uses all.
  • string $orderby: The order to output the links. E.g. ‘id’, ‘name’, ‘url’, ‘description’, or ‘rating’. Or maybe owner. If you start the name with an underscore the order will be reversed. You can also specify ‘rand’ as the order which will return links in a random order.
  • int $limit: Limit to X entries. If not specified, all entries are shown.
